Prince Harry's attacks on his stepmother Camilla have been labelled "unforgivable" by a royal commentator who has worked closely with both members of the Royal Family.

Angela Levin, who has written biographies about both Prince Harry and the Queen Consort, told GB News' Dan Wootton that the Duke of Sussex's comments about King Charles' wife were "spiteful".

Levin said: "I think he's very unfair about Camilla. When he said he met her for the first time, it was like being forced to have an injection.

"And I think that's very cruel."

Wootton asked: "What do you think, Angela, about this concept of Charles having a red line when it comes to Camilla? Do you think this might prompt him to have any sort of response?"

The royal commentator replied: "Well, he's very protective of his darling wife, as he calls her, because he knows what she's been through, 20 years of people calling her vile things, but she didn't complain once.

"That's what's very important. She didn't make a fuss. She hoped it would pass over, and that's in her nature.

"So she's not gonna make a big fuss about this, but King Charles most certainly will, but he'll do it very cautiously.

Harry divulges details of his at times strained relationship with Camilla throughout his autobiography.

The Duke of Sussex wrote regarding King Charles choosing to move on with Camilla: “He had asked my grandmother for permission and she had grudgingly granted it, according to what was published.

"In spite of Willy and I begging him not to, my father proceeded with his plan.

"We shook him by the hand and wished him all the best without hard feelings.

"We recognised that he was going to be with the woman he always loved, the woman that fate had in store for him from the beginning.”

Harry continued: “I knew without a doubt that this marriage would drive our father away from us not in a literal sense, not in a deliberate or malicious way, but still... I would push him away.

"My father was entering a new space, a closed space, a strictly insular space.

"I sensed that Willy and I would see our father less and that made me feel mixed emotions.

“I wasn’t happy about losing a second parent and I didn’t know how to feel about having a step-mother who I thought had sacrificed me on her public relations altar."

He added: "What I wanted in spite of everything was my father to be happy. Oddly enough I wanted Camilla to be happy. Maybe she was less dangerous when she was happy?”
